2014.4 Vivado - Vivado gives Abnormal program termination (EXCEPTION_ACCESS_VIOLATION) while opening an EDIF netlist created with Synopsys Synplify / Pro (J-2014.09-SP1)c

Description

I am able to add an EDIF file created with Synopsys Synplify / Pro (J-2014.09-SP1)c to a Vivado project.

However, if I try to open the synthesized design or run implementation, Vivado IDE closes with an unexpected error:

Solution

Synopsys Synplify / Pro (J-2014.09-SP1)c is creating EDIF files with cell references that do not contain a "view" clause.

For Example:
 

(view PRIM (viewType NETLIST)


These cell references are redundant and not needed but should be handled correctly by Vivado.
 
This issue will be fixed in Vivado 2015.1.
 
A patch was created to address this issue in Vivado 2014.4 and 2014.4.1.
 
For Vivado 2014.4 use the attached patch: AR63347_Vivado_2014_4_preliminary_rev1.zip
 
For Vivado 2014.4.1 use the attached patch: AR63347_Vivado_2014_4_1_preliminary_rev1.zip
